SUCCESS: DOING SMALL BASIC THINGS DAILY
BASIC SCRIPTURE: JOSHUA 1:1-9
Welcome! When Jim Rohn, the great American philosopher, was asked how he became successful while many of his friends did not, he simply said: “The answer is simple! The things I found to be easy to do, they found to be easy not to do. I found it easy to set the goals that could change my life.
I found it easy to read the books that could affect my thinking/my ideas. They found that easy not to do. I found it easy to attend the classes/seminars/get around other successful people. They said it probably wouldn’t matter. If I had to sum it up, I would say, what I found to be easy to do, they found it not to be easy to do.
Six years later, I am a millionaire and they are all still blaming the economy, the government, policies, yet they neglected to do the basic easy things.” Amazing indeed! Basic reason for failure in life is refusal to daily do the small basic things that you know are good, e.g. meditating on the Word (Joshua 1:8). Success for you is not impossibility. Stop looking for big secrets or big revelations for success. The keys to your Canaan land are around you.
Mark 12:37 declares, “And the common people heard Him gladly.” Note the words: “COMMON PEOPLE.” When it comes to life, don’t be too sophisticated! Do the simple, common things you know daily and consistently, like praying, Bible reading, reading great books, avoiding dirty thoughts, attending regularly your local church services, planning before action, avoiding what you know to be sin/bad, giving/tithing regularly,
forgiving regularly, controlling your sleep, keeping fit physically, thinking more, working on schedule, never harboring a grudge, always listening to the Holy Spirit, etc. Reject procrastination /laziness! One indiscipline or procrastination always leads to another. So is discipline!
Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishments You don’t fail in one day. Failure is a result of little, regular indiscipline repeated every day.So pay close attention to the little things you do today and daily. 2022 is your year!

- Deliver your life from the chains of laziness or procrastination.
- Ask for the grace to do what others are finding hard to do.
